Rotem Gilbert Workshop

The East Bay Chapter of the American Recorder Society invites you to their fall workshop Cantate Domino

Saturday, Oct 14, 2017 • 10:00 am – 3:45 pm
St Alban’s Episcopal Church, 1501 Washington, Albany

In this workshop we will focus on music by Hamburg composer Hieronymus Praetorius (1560-1629) and his German contemporaries, Michael Praetorius, Johann Vierdanck, and Heinrich Schütz. Cantate Domino by H. Praetorius is one of his last motets and is set for eight voices in “modern” double choir. His Verbum Caro for seven voices is more Renaissance in style. We will orchestrate it for singers, soft winds, viols, brass, and reeds. Plucked instruments are also welcome.

MedRen Collegium on April 8!

Dear Early Music enthusiasts:

The SFEMS MedRen Collegium is getting close! If you have not yet enrolled, we would love to have your presence and participation to make beautiful music under the direction of Adam Gilbert (director of the summer Medieval and Renaissance Workshop). Repertoire will include music that Isaac composed for Lorenzo de Medici and Maximilian I, as well as music of his students Senfl and Rener. In his dynamic teaching style, for which he is so well-known, Adam will trace the line of the musical evolution of both popular and sacred song around the year 1517, which Adam calls “a year of singing dangerously.” This day promises to be a musical and intellectual treat.

Viols, voices, vielles, recorders, sackbuts, dulcians, harps, lutes, rebecs, douçaines, cornetti…! Come one, come all to play and sing in the parish hall of St. Alban’s church in Albany on April 8. To enroll online, please visit the SFEMS website sfems.org or complete the attached registration form and mail it to the SFEMS address on the form. Since we are only two weeks away from the date, it would be helpful to know ahead of time that you’re coming if you choose to register by mail. To do that, or for more information, contact SFEMS administrator Jessica House Steward: jhousesteward@sfems.com, or me (Greta Haug-Hryciw): gr8asf@yahoo.com.

 Thanks! We really hope you can come to support the SFEMS MedRen collegium. Adam volunteers his time for the day and the proceeds go toward the summer workshop scholarship fund. Please do share this invitation with others.
